I appreciate it guys I just didn't want to be a bother. I figured riding it with the seal leaking would cause further damage so I got it in ASAP. Are any of you familiar with seal savers. I been reading some posts about it here and ppl seem to be about 50/50. I want your opinion if you have one.

Seal savers will help, but only if you keep them clean.
If you don't keep them clean they just hold more dirt at the stock seal.
When I had Javi at Trail Tricks do the suspension on the 525, it had seal savers, Javi said to leave them off and Just keep the seals clean.
Two years later and many hard miles, no leaks...
My $.02
You decide.

On another note, I would ride Saturday with the leaking seal, add a couple ounces of fork oil and go, not much risk of damage. Front end might feel soft, but you will be riding!

I have the stock fork boots on it still and I believe that was part of the problem as I clean it after each ride it appears gunk got into the little vent holes of the boots and caused problems. The other part of it is I believe I blew it from a hard impact as I landed a jump with the front fork impacting on the top of a whoop. Monday morning I had about a 6 inch puddle under the right fork. Suspension is like "Uncle Bucks Mercury" so sanders took the bike in Wednesday night.
